2. PALAGAMA BEACH RESORT AND SUGAR BEACH THALPE

What’s your typical holiday like? Palagama Beach Resort has redefined the mere concept of lavish, extravagant, over-the-top holidays. Consisting of 16 cabanas and villas burrowed in the core of the acreage. From the eco-friendly outlook to Cajun and illuk roofs, to the rugged coastline and luscious greenery, everything here is designed to bring you back to nature. Transitioning into simple, traditional and a tranquil aura, Cecil Balmond, architecture of Palagama Beach Resort, constructed the structure through application of these notions. The idea that the father-son duo, renowned designers Cecil Balmond and John Balmond came up with, was to create beautiful, ecological living spaces- amalgamating the Sri Lankan view while slightly infusing the contemporary scene. Cecil and John Balmond, are founders at the prestigious establishment, Balmond Studios. The Balmond Studio is known for its revolutionary approach to architecture. The Studio’s work represents new attitudes towards the relationship between artistry and our surroundings. Balmond Studio is an award-winning design firm that manages productions in Colombo, London and Singapore.
